The Stigma Free Florida campaign is a partnership between NAMI Florida, the state’s largest grassroots organization for individuals and families facing mental health challenges, and the HR Florida State Council, an affiliate of the Society of Human Resource Management.
The mission of Stigma Free Florida is to change attitudes within workplaces regarding mental health and individuals with mental illness. This campaign targets leaders of businesses and organizations who are decision-makers and can influence the workplace culture.
NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI Florida is the state organization.
We have 29 local affiliates in Florida with volunteers who work to raise awareness and provide support and education.
NAMI relies on gifts and contributions to support our important work.
